Effres, earned his J.D. from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law in 2012 and his B.A. in Rhetoric from the University of California, Berkeley in 2009. He has an unequivocal passion for advocacy and serving his clients throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, Ventura, and all surrounding counties.

As a first year lawyer he was a proud member of the Bet Tzedek New Leadership Council, which allowed him to provide pro bono legal services to indigent clients in the areas of housing, elder law, employment rights, debtors’ rights and bankruptcy.

Education & Achievements

Justin is a rising star trial lawyer. He tried his first 5 jury trials in just 21 months. One verdict was 10 times the insurance company’s top offer, and another verdict was more than double the insurance company’s top offer. Justin also played an integral role in recent multimillion dollar settlements: $11.25M, $5.75M, $2.015M, and $1.6M.

As a fifth year lawyer, Justin graduated from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College at the Thunderhead Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. This exclusive, nationally-renowned training program only accepts lawyers who represent human beings and not insurance companies, large corporations, or governmental entities other than legal services or public defenders.

During law school at the University of Southern California (USC), he clerked at Effres & Effres. He also spent a semester externing for the Honorable Barry Russell at the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, and a summer doing research for esteemed real estate law professor and textbook author George Lefcoe.

As an undergraduate at the University of California in Berkeley, Justin served as intern and then intern coordinator for the Pretrial Services Division of the Alameda County Superior Court of California, Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse. Pretrial Services facilitates the release of recently arrested criminal defendants on their own recognizance – without posting bail – where it can be shown that they are not a flight risk or a danger to the community.

Our Clients' Success Stories

At Effres & Effres, your satisfaction is our priority! See for yourself what our clients have to say about working with us.

    "Justice was done."
    Dear Mr. Effres, I was the juror that took your card and assured you I’d call, as time is such a premium in our lives, dropping you a line is much easier. Thank you for the offer of our suggestions and/or comments. What impressed me the most and what seemed the be a determining factor was the diligence in which you presented the evidence, your depth of conviction for Maria’s case was deeply felt. Your calmness in dealing with the judge with the study in the strength of the human character! The only suggestion I would make (and this is coming from a color consultant point of view) would be to wear dark suits, white shirt and a striking tie (LOVE THE SCALE OF JUSTICE TIE), other than that – change nothing. Please pass on my best wishes to Maria even though the money could not begin to suffice for her injury the quality of her life may be enhanced, they are a beautiful family and were represented by a compassionate, thorough, competent lawyer. Justice was done. God bless you. by K. R.

    "I am very grateful that Mr. Effres chose to represent me."
    Steve, his son Justin and the entire staff were so friendly, helpful and welcoming. I was in a work related accident and Mr. Effres knew that I was not at fault, and fought hard long hours to resolve my case. Frequent phone calls with updates, every question or concern answered, listened to everything I said. I am very grateful that Mr. Effres chose to represent me. I highly recommend his law firm and he will do whatever it takes to win. I really don’t know how to thank him/them enough…

    "They did an absolutely fantastic job and obtained a stunning settlement for my mom."
    I'm an attorney. My mom was seriously injured in a slip-and-fall accident. Steve and Justin represented my mom. They did an absolutely fantastic job and obtained a stunning settlement for my mom. And they're both wonderful human beings. They, and their staff, treated my mom with kindness and respect. I cannot sing their praises enough!

    "I would have no hesitation referring your firm to others."
    Dear Mr. Effres, I received your letter regarding regrets that you will not be able to take my case. Thank you. I understand your decision and am grateful for the excellent advice and the time you spent listening, guiding and helping me towards the decisions I need to make. I would have no hesitation referring your firm to others. May you and your firm prosper in the pursuit of truth and justice. Sincerely, S.C. by S. C.
    - S.C.
    "I truly appreciate all the time, energy and patience you devoted to my case."
    Dear Mr. Effres, I’d just like to thank you for all you did for me. I truly appreciate all the time, energy and patience you devoted to my case. Sincere thanks by B. B.

    "I would definitely recommend this firm."
    I would definitely recommend this firm, after everything they have done for me I can’t describe in words, the person that was responsible for my serious Injuries was on suspended license and no insurance but they still stood by my side and fight for me, this firm is about Justice. They were always there when I need anything, they came to the hospital, they even help me go to the court and my favorite I was able to text them when I had a question very convenient. Thanks alot to Justin Effres for always responding to all my questions and never giving up on my case.

    "The lawyers were very detailed and helped explain why every step was necessary."
    After I decided to use the services of Effres and Associates I was given a list of things I needed to do in order to document my injuries. The lawyers were very detailed and helped explain why every step was necessary. Everything was my decision and they were willing to work with me instead of pushing me into what they felt was right. They also constantly communicated with me in regards to my recovery, medical issues and the progress of the case. This firm helped me get the compensation I deserved after I herniated a disc in my low back and nearly died in a car accident. Nothing can completely take away the events of one night but being able to afford any future medical treatment necessary and having been compensated for five years of lost wages was a good start. I cannot imagine using a different firm. I have referred any one I know to the lawyers at Effres and Associates because these guys are top class.

    "So pleased to win the case, through your legal expertise."
    Dear Mr. Effres, Please allow us to make your acquaintance. We are writing at the urging of Mr. Gusa, who shared with us the lovely history behind our receiving a beautiful six-passenger golf cart. As you know, he is a fine man and he was so pleased to win the case, through your legal expertise, so as to provide us with this unexpected gift. We would never have conceived of having such a large golf cart. Now that we have it, we are discovering how very valuable it is for being able to take a group of our distinguished guests all together on a tour around the monastery grounds. Perhaps one day circumstances will be such that you find yourself in Arizona. If so, we would be pleased to invite you on a tour of the monastery! With best regards by X. N.
